If you are willing to put in the work, the help room can make a good grade very achievable. Grades aside, it is super cool to understand what you are doing! When I did not have a clue, the help room put everything into perspective.

Future plans: To become an associate professor and go to Hawaii (bucket list place to visit).

Advice on how to approach P-Cubed: The focus in this class is on understanding as opposed to memorizing. If you try to approach the exams by memorizing the solutions to problems you are going to struggle. The key is to focus on understanding how the different concepts are connected to each other. Definitely take notes on the pre-class material and bring all your questions to class - also don't ever let a question go in class - if you have it - ask it.

What do you recommend doing if you are struggling in class? Definitely come talk to me or make arrangements to talk to me but also the LA's have taken the class and have been in your position and often can provide really constructive advice about how to tackle particular struggles.
